Photographer's Note

southern indian tribe, SINAGUA (spanish for "without water") farmers began building this 5-storey, 20-room dwelling early in the 12th century. it stands in a cliff recess about 100 feet above the valley. early settlers marveled at the structure and assumed that it was aztec in origin, hence the name montezuma castle. this dwelling was built againts the base of he cliff. the creek was a reliable source of water, and there was fertile land on the nearby terrace.

montezuma castle is about 50 miles south of flagstaff, AZ, off I-17.
